HEBRON, Conn. - An 80-year-old U.S. woman has been arrested after tearing down political signs showing an image of President Barack Obama with an Adolf Hitler-style moustache.

Nancy Lack tells WVIT-TV she was offended and took down three posters that were hung last week near the post office in Hebron, Connecticut.

Workers for frequent presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche, who were putting up the signs, called police.

Lack says she knew she would get in trouble. But she says she lived through World War II and was angry that someone would portray the president as a Nazi.

She was charged with larceny and breach of peace and released on a promise to appear in court next week.
